Arrival and departure
There are trains almost every hour to Suderburg, Uelzen, Bad Bevensen, Bienenbüttel, Lüneburg, Bardowick and Winsen an der Luhe along the cycle path. Slightly less regular rail connections are available in Stederdorf and Bad Bodenteich (every 1-2 hours). In the district of Uelzen, three free “Entdeckerbus” circular bus routes run during peak season (early June to early October) on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. (Bicycles transported free of charge).
The specifics of the tour
On the section between Bad Bodenteich and Hösseringen to Lüneburg, the cycle path meets the Ilmenau river several times, but does not run continuously along its banks. As the route runs through several nature reserves, cyclists also need to use unpaved farm lanes and forest paths. Their accessibility depends on the weather. This applies in particular to the scenic secondary route from Hösseringen to Uelzen and the connecting route between Bad Bodenteich and Hösseringen, where it is more difficult to travel with a trailer or bulky luggage.
